SET YOURSELF A SCHEDULE
A blog is all about connecting with your readers, but if they keep coming back to your site and see no content, they may lose interest quickly. This is why it is advisable for you to set yourself a schedule for your blog posts. Make sure you advertise it on your contact me and about me pages so that your readers know when your next blog post will be live. Above all else, make sure you stick to this schedule to ensure that you look credible. This will also be in your favor when it comes to wanting to work with brands or collaborate on campaigns.
CONTENT IS KING
Finally, content is so important for a blog. Otherwise, it just becomes another website. So it is important for you to focus on your content. It is no good churning out posts that make no sense or are full of mistakes and grammatical errors. The content, although regular, needs to be quality. This ensures that you look like a credible writer, as well as keeping up the momentum of enthusiasm from your readers.
